An alarm clock shouldn't shell-shock you out of your dreams. That's why I created Gentle Alarm which tries to wake you up during light sleep using an optional pre-alarm.

Alarm clocks can't know if you are in light sleep or deep sleep (those movement based alarm clock don't work) but they can play a very quiet pre-alarm which you will only hear if you are in light sleep. If you are in deep sleep, you will simply sleep through the pre-alarm.

The pre-alarm plays 30min before you really want to get up (you can change that). If the pre-alarm wakes you up, you will be more refreshed than if you had slept until the main alarm because at that time you would have fallen back into deep sleep. Give it a try and I am sure you won't want to miss it anymore.

Of course, the app has all the usual features of a great alarm clock:
It can switch to a night display automatically when docking the phone. It can automatically shorten the snooze time with each time you press snooze. It can automatically create playlists of your favorite artist or genre. And it allows you to change colors, fonts, and backgrounds.


* RECEIVE_BOOT_COMPLETED: So it can activate an alarm after you reboot the phone. After reboot, all alarms of all apps are cancelled by default.

* WAKE_LOCK: So the phone can stay on while playing an alarm or while displaying the night display.

* DISABLE_KEYGUARD: When the alarm rings, you don't have to unlock the phone to be able to turn the alarm off.

* VIBRATE: obvious

* WRITE_SETTINGS: It adjusts some system settings such as airplane mode, silent mode, etc.

* WRITE_EXTERNAL_STORAGE: It logs some data on your SD card.

* READ_PHONE_STATE: So it can turn off the alarm when the phone rings and prevent an alarm from ringing while you are talking on the phone.

* READ_LOGS: So you can send me debug data (if you choose to)

* INTERNET: So that I can display ads (trial version only). Also, if the app crashes, it offers to send me a debug report directly to my servers. The app will politely ask you if you want to send that data or not. If you do, it needs an internet connection. If not, it doesn't but I still need the permission in the app because you may want to send the debug data.

Been using this for years and love it. Hard to imagine, but I've been using Gentle Alarm for years-- I bought the paid version 3 years ago almost to the day, and used the free version for months before that. Excellent use of three bucks. This thing has a TON of options that I'm sure I don't utilize in the best possible way. But, this app reliably wakes me up each morning without anything blaring or disruptive. What's super great about this is the support. Any time you have an issue or questions about GA, contact the developer, and they'll get it sorted. They're really on the ball.

Awesome. I just love it...

Doesn't work on wednesdays That's my late start

Seems nice but There is no ability to play a song alarm just one time -- It plays for a certain number of minutes only and then the song cuts off. Too much feature focus on people who don't wake up, and not enough on just basic alarm functions like playing a song once.

by A Google User the 6/2/2013

Best android alarm I've tested out all major alarms, and this one is the best. The pre-alarm is great. UI is very nice. Great support from developer as well. And has the best alarm widget, it's a small widget with next alarm on it, that I could not find with other alarms.

by A Google User the 5/13/2013

Makes waking easier & certain. Well designed and works very well. Let's me have loudness to wake, snooze for laziness, will not let me over snooze, and awakens me naturally on most mornings. Clock lighting is not a concern for me, but this has multiple options for being dim as you need it. Excellent alarm app--no sense looking any further!

Hey what's up I just wanted tell you how much I love this app and I need a request! I don't want to install clock apps galore for one clock app that does this or that features that I needed to do. yours does many features that I love the specialist alarm wake up and sounds to go to sleep, now I thought that what I really need also is an hourly or half hour voice announcements of time etc everything from five minutes or every fifteen mins with hourly the alarm clock just to do hourly alarm speech synthesis my hands are dirty with grease or oil etc from working in the field, but if you were to add the voice chimes or comes like a grandfather clock would do as h another option. then I don't have to pick up with my dirty handsthat are a little always grease oiled or have paint and don't want to touch phone etc.. maybe also you could add in my calendar events aloud or Google timed task event. most importantly though voice announcements 5 mins past the hour or 15 minutes past hour 30 minutes in the hour or the time is 2:00 PM you have 3 calendar event upcoming calendar #1 etc events, tasks etc. dude hi5 hi5 hi5 hi5 hi5 hi5 hi5 for such a great app I use on a daily basis! I've purchased every app so far you have created! love sleep now! seven lucky high fives always. DyingJedi ps feel free to ask me anything etc.

by A Google User the 4/8/2013
